EGO’s Guide to What to Wear to a Christmas Market

The Christmas markets are an annual festive favourite. What could be better than sipping mulled wine, browsing festive stalls, and snacking on savoury delights with your friends and family? And what about planning your outfit for the day? The Christmas markets are a treat but if you’ve not given your clothing, footwear, and accessories the right consideration then you might find yourself cold, damp, and miserable. We don’t want that, do we? There is nothing worse than chilly feet and cold hands when you want to wander around the seasonal stalls. Fear not, this EGO guide is here to help you navigate the essential wardrobe choices for this chilly time of year and to help you know exactly what to wear to a Christmas market with some extra hints for maximising your Christmas market looks. 

What to wear for Christmas markets

Warm layers are going to be a necessity for your seasonal vibe. Christmas markets can vary from totally outdoors, totally indoors, or a mixture. You might even want to break your visit by stepping into a cosy aroma-filled coffee shop so it’s imperative that you stay comfy by whipping those snuggly layers on and off with ease. 

EGO’s range of new clothing is the perfect starting point when deciding what to wear to the Christmas markets. You’ll want to be super-warm yet stylish and you mustn’t forget that comfort must be top of the consideration list – there’s nothing worse than sore feet and a bright red nose. Happily, we’ve maxed out on choice and created a go-to collection of outfits for Christmas markets for you, and we’ve ensured that there is something for everyone no matter your vibe. 

Coats for the Christmas markets

A statement coat is the perfect piece to build your look around. We have every outerwear option covered from puffer gilets to ever-stylish trench coats. With EGO’s huge array of ladies’ coats, you’ll never be stuck for a fabulous piece of outerwear to show off your winter style. 

A gilet is a great option because you can stay toasty whilst keeping your hands free for the all-important Christmas shopping or the glass of mulled wine you’ve been waiting for all year.  Our faux shearling aviator style has you covered with its slightly oversized fit, neutral colour, and smart buckle detail.

Looking for something that will keep you cosy from head to toe but still want to feel dressy? We love a maxi coat. It has all the feels to maximise glamour and will keep you snug whilst you mooch from stall to stall. It looks great when paired with the seasonal essentials of chunky boots and a gorgeous bag. We’re loving the Leif Knotted Detail Strappy Shoulder Bag in Nude Faux Leather and the stylish Magners Lace Up Ankle Biker Boot in Taupe Soft Faux Leather – the perfect combo!

The best footwear for the Christmas markets

Walking around the stalls at the Christmas markets can be tiring and you’ll want to maximise the amount of time you can spend wandering around with your friends. Comfort is key. Boots are the obvious choice because they keep you warm, and comfy, but can easily be dressed up or down. We’ve curated an amazing range of women’s boots that are just right for strolling around in wintery weather. Consider a pair of lace-up ankle boots if you want to rock a low-key look or if you want to stand out and turn heads then why not opt for some statement cowboy boots

And, who wouldn’t look stylish in our best-selling ultra mini boots, perfect for all the demands of a busy day at the Christmas markets. They’re super-comfy and lined with faux fur so keeping both toasty and stylish is guaranteed.

Keeping warm at the Christmas markets

Given that Christmas markets always happen during the winter, knitwear dresses are always a snug yet stylish option to keep you warm. A knitted roll-neck dress ticks all the seasonal boxes with its chunky style and long sleeves. For ultimate style points, style your knitted mini with some cute leg warmers
